Indigo Treat Haskap
Bog Cranberry (Lingonberry)

Indigo Treat has fruit similar in size and firmness to their Tundra variety, making it suitable for commercial production or your home garden.

Indigo Treat, like the Borealis Haskap, does not self-pollinate well. We recommend another variety, such as Honeybee or Berry Blue Honeyberry, be planted at a minimum 1:8 ratio with it to boost fruit production. Many experts suggest the highest Haskap yield comes from fields planted with the most varieties.

Due to stronger interest in newer cultivars, 2015 will be our last year selling Indigo Treat.

Bog Cranberry is a native, ground cover species. These plants generally produce one crop per year in summer. The plants have single blooms. Leaves are bright green, oval and alternate. New growth can be covered with fine hairs. Plants may spread 3 feet in width forming a dense mat which makes it attractive as an ornamental ground cover.

Wild crops of Bog Cranberry are harvested each year in Newfoundland (more than 200,000 lbs/yr). Harvest of wild fruit can no longer keep up with demand. In Europe, 80 million pounds per year of this crop is grown or harvested from the wild.

Bog Cranberry flowers are similar in shape to those of blueberry and may be white or pink in color. These berries are considered to be highly flavored but not as tart as cranberries.
